Stamp Something - Celebrate Somethings

Good Morning and happy Friday!! 

Before I get to my card I want to share some good luck I've had this week. We all know that there is some very generous candy on blogs each week but Jacque from Jacque's Joie de Vivre is the most generous lady in blogland when it comes to candy.. and I was one of the VERY lucky winners only yesterday!!

I've followed Jacque's blog for a long time as her creations are just wonderful and even as she battles with her health she is still always very upbeat and is an inspiration to many. Her blog posts are always perky and fun. If you haven't checked out her blog before now, please do.. you won't be disappointed.

I must also mention Jo from Rambling Boots as I won her Simon Says Stamp blog hop candy on Wednesday.. (yes, yes... I've had a very lucky month, lol!! ).. which was a SSS Exclusives set of stamps. I picked a sentiment set as it's about the one thing I am desperately short of.

Now.. on to my card.. The Stamp Something challenge this week is Celebrate Somethings.

We are being sponsored by Motivet 

and the DT have used their wonderful images in their samples. Do make sure to check them out.

This card is on it's way to Germany right now.  Domi, from Simon Says Stamp, is getting married tomorrow and Simon Says had a special challenge to celebrate the occasion. All you have to do is make a wedding card, link it in Mr. Linky but you MUST mail the card to Domi too.!!

The sweet image is called Doraline and Dexter, Bride & Groom and I have coloured them using copic markers.
My papers are Victoria & Albert from PaperMania and they have the most gorgeous texture to them. Perfect for wedding cards!! I matted them with 'cappucino' coredinations. The heart is grungeboard and I painted it with crackle paint. When it was dry I inked over it with Brushed Cordoroy. 

I'm also entering into Cute Card Thursday's challege - Someone Special and By the Cute and Girly's challenge - Celebrations

My flowers are, as always, from Wild Orchid Crafts. And finally the sentiment is from a CC. Designs kit.
Pearls and ribbon are from my stash.

Thanks for popping by, do make sure to visit my lovely teamies' blogs to see what they've created.

Have a great weekend and HAPPY CRAFTING!
